Fires were reported from two factories and a high-rise building in three separate incidents during the wee hours of Saturday night.

In the first incident, a major fire broke out at a leather factory located in the Narela Industrial area damaging stored goods worth lakhs of rupees.

According to fire officials, thirty fire tenders were rushed to the spot.

“The fire began on the third floor of the building and spread to the floors below,” said a senior fire official.

The second blaze was reported from a factory in south Delhi's Okhla area.

“Fifteen fire tenders were rushed to the spot to douse the fire.” A similar incident was reported from the tenth floor of the Vikram Tower in Rajendra Place — where the office of an air conditioner company was gutted.

Twelve fire tenders were sent to the spot. “The cause of fire is yet to be ascertained in all three cases. However, there were no casualties,” the official said. pti
